Gustavo Solis covers the South Bay for The San Diego Union-Tribune. That includes the marijuana industry, local elections, city finance, development projects and whatever else readers call him about. He was born in Mexico City and grew up in San Diego. Before working for the Union-Tribune, Gustavo covered Harlem for a now-defunct website called DNAinfo. Before that, he covered immigration for The Desert Sun in Palm Springs where he shared a Pulitzer Prize for explanatory journalism with the staff of the Arizona Republic for a series about a border wall.
